Gemma is really quite scared. Of a lot. How not to become a Tinder using sociopath, how to stop rewarding yourself with over-priced poached eggs on toast, how to un-stick your stuck life. Gemma is going to find her voice, but she's not entirely sure what it will sound like. Or if she will like it much.
Developed from a short play staged as part of Response 2: Power in 2017, Quarry is an insightful, brutally honest tale of one woman's struggle for confidence and clarity in the modern world. Join us to witness Gemma as she discovers a few home truths and goes on a spectacularly funny journey into her inner soul.
Quarry is currently in development with Blink Theatre.
